The Compass - - Sports -

Be­fore the mora­to­rium, this was a com­mon sight in the wa­ters off New­found­land and Labrador. John Ry­der, Jabez Ry­der and Harold White haul their cod trap off Bon­av­ista in 1987. The dec­la­ra­tion of the north­ern cod mora­to­rium put 30,000 peo­ple out of work in New­found­land and Labrador, end­ing a way of life for peo­ple like the men of this in­shore fish­ing crew.
